If you look at the FTS that I just posted I have a rock that juts up almost to the top of the water ( lots of light exposure ) what sort of coral could be suggested to add onto that peak and would do really well? Stock lights right now.

Problem with a monti cap is that it will eventually shade the bottom of the tank,

Not quite sure what stock lights you have. If you have power compacts...maybe a hydnophora? I think that's what I have, and it's pretty cool. It branches and all, but trying to find one is gonna be fun. I never heard of this coral until today when I got myself one.

Try turning up the saturation on your tank.
